and invites them to watch a movie with spielberg. i'm referring to "lincoln." basically the republican party keeps talking on two sides of their face and not being hon west the american people they just don't like this president. but that's one of the reasons why the president recognizes his vacuum when it comes to that leadership. that's why he keeps sending vice president biden down to the congress to the negotiate on his behalf because they just don't like him. >> let's look at the record, maria teresa. speaker boehner has declined invitations to state dinners for each of the following countries, south korea, germany, china, mexico, india, and, of course, great britain. as for republican senate leader mitch mcconnell he turned down invasions for the state dinners of india and china. he even declined to come to the white house then the president was celebrating his home state's college basketball championships. but it's the president's fault that republicans aren't comfortable with him. explain that to me. >> something that may not be well-known is when boehner actually did go to one of th
. >> when lincoln was debatings baiting about the future of the country, lincoln studied the deck la ragsz of independence. lincoln with his thinking about america on the declaration of ind pen accidence. not yes on the constitution, but more fundamentally on the declaration. it's obviously what the civil war was about. this was lincolnesque in the sense that he was applying -- barack obama was applying the thinking about the unity of the country in the dignity of all men and women to the problems he faced today in saying there's a role for the union, if you will. don't forget, lincoln talked about the union, there's a role for the union, there's a role for all of us, together, to solve the problems that we all face. and that was the lincoln part of it. this came, and there's a big conflicting. we the people believe that ea enduring security do not require through perpetual war. who turned sworn enemies into the surest of friends. and we must carry these lessons into this time as well. i think he's talking about iran. the one war that you face within the next few moblts. . >> you may very
of martin luther king and abraham lincoln. this is martin luther king day. we celebrate that, as well. the second time a president has been inaugurated on martin luther king day. about 800,000 people will be there on the mall. a little bit smaller than four years ago. but no less buoyant. a lot of smiling faces out there. we hear the choir of p.s. 22 in staten island. >> they are the largest choir in staten island. and i believe they are fifth graders. let's listen to them for a second. ♪ don't pay no mind to the feeling, until you feel it ♪ >> we love the caps. we love the swaying this morning. we've been thinking to ourselves, a second inauguration is typically not as -- not as surprising as the first inauguration. but nonetheless, it rededicates this country to big ideas. and the person who has to do it in his speech, walking up to the podium, is the president. we saw the first family walking in to st. john's church earlier this morning. >> they're at that worship service right now. there they are, right there, just before they walked into st. john's episcopal church, across th
foundation. >>> next, rush limbaugh has a theory about why so many on the left are fans of the movie "lincoln." >> why is bill clinton out there at the golden globes last night being brought on stage to thunderous standing ovations to talk about lincoln and what he did during -- what did lincoln do? as far as these people are concerned, he wiped out the south. but he didn't finish, so what the left is admitting today that they are doing is once -- trying to finish it off. lincoln did not fully finish. they're all focused on gods and guns in the south. they love both of them. and so the south has to be wiped out again. i'm telling you, essentially there is an all-out effort being made to marginalize conservatism. >> reminds me of radio rwanda in the bad old days. it's been far right republicans obviously doing all the civil war talk. they're the ones talking about the civil war, about nullification of federal laws and all the secession petitions out there. >>> before house republicans head off for their annual retreat this week, i think it's in williamsburg, the democratic congressional campai

. >> "new york times" best-selling author of lincoln biography "team of rivals" doris kearns goodwin in between awards shows has joined us. and nbc news special correspondent tom brokaw. welcome to all of you. tom, that's where we tee it up. the president, as he begins a second term, very difficult climate in washington and very real expectations. >> yes. and i was looking at those top three priorities for the american people. and they all fit into his single most difficult task, it seems to me, both conceptually and specifically. in the next couple of years, he only has a couple of years, these are second terms and not four-year terms. you're running right up to the mid-term election frankly. there's a desperate need for the country going forward to do something about tax reform and entitlements sitting under the umbrella of fixing the economy and creating near jobs and stopping spending. that's going to be tough. we have been giving people things for a long time. now they'll have to reel them in and fine tune them, and that will take an exceptional hand in the white house to pull t
goodwin later on. what is the chance he doesn't quote lincoln's second inaugural? >> i would be shocked if lincoln is not quoted. i would be shocked if specific issues aren't mentioned. that doesn't mean he isn't going to talk about newtown. but as far as talking about guns and gun control, he's got a state of the union in three weeks. advisers continue to remind us of that. hey, this is not a laundry list of things he wants to get done. yes, he has a small window. i think savannah is right, i think we'll be able to judge by the fourth of july of this year, has he gotten one of his gun proposals passed through congress, is immigration done? all of those things, if he can get them done, probably need to get done by the summer. but today's speech knot for that. that's that state of the union which takes place in three weeks. >> all right. chuck todd in front of reviewing stand. we want to show you, especially those just joining us the kind of calendar of events, the schedule upcoming. right now, the president is hosting congressional leaders inside the white house for a kind of traditiona
think, is that if you educate the country -- you know, when he talked to you, he mentioned lincoln's quote. there's a second sentence to lincoln's quote. lincoln's first quote was without public opinion, nothing can happen, but with it, he who holds sentiment goes deeper than he who makes laws. i think the second term what he understand from the first term is he was inside washington too much. you have to use the bully pulpit. you have to get out among the people. you have to mobilize. he has a base out there, a coalition that voted for him, pretty actively came to the polls. and the best presidents have been able to mobilize pressure from the outside in. and what four years has told him, maybe he's tried to get republicans over. some of them don't come. he should keep trying. and he has to really keep trying with the democrats. i agree. those are the ones he should schmooze. whatever that word is. i didn't say it right. >> don't pretend you don't know it. >> it is between smooch and -- exactly. >> richard, i want to pick up on that point. >> although that sounds very good, of cour
and prayers. as he left the west front of the capitol, a nostalgic turned back toward the lincoln memorial. >> i want to take a look out one more time. >> now there were shades of the campaign that the president winning out, success can't mean that a few people are making it and a growing number are barely scratching by. the president acknowledging that bipartisan -- or the lack of bipartisanship here in washington but noted that everyone needs to work together for the good of the country. john? >> dan, that moment at the end of your piece where the president turned around and looked, that was astounding. 23 seconds he stood there and he gazed out at the national mall to let it sink in. it must have been an extraordinary day for him. what does today hold for him after that full night of dancing he had? >> reporter: he heads to the national cathedral. the day after inauguration, the presidents always get a chance to go sit down at an interfaith service, a prayer and prayers are given not only for the president but also the vice president for their second terms. this is historic event that d
their sauerkraut. >> they were invited to a screening of "lincoln," apparently at the very last minute -- >> nobody's perfect. >> i would think when the president invites you to see a movie at the white house, you might want to go. maybe if you were disagreeable in nature, not fun and quite frankly not interested in getting anywhere on spending, maybe you would decline. look at the president. why don't i play that sound bite again, no matter what you think of his ideologically, joe, wouldn't you want to have a beer with that guy or a beer with mitch mcconnell. >> you keep interrupting. >> we should get a jar. >> should get a jar. he's a likable guy. we spent time with him. i like him an awful lot. he's ae's a likable guy. he hasn't reached out to republicans and he hasn't reached out a lot. when he reached out, they haven't come. he said his daughters don't want to spend that much time with him. he will have a lot of time to play cards. >> get merlot. >> cigarettes. will the president let them smoke? >> coming up. arianna huffington and nbc director chuck todd and "washington post," eugene robinso
of all time at 135 words. lincoln's terribly famous one in 1865 just 700 words. is shorter better the second time around? >> i think typically less is more with these kinds of speeches, but it's hard. you have a president who has been re-elected who knows this will be the last time he or she will ever do this, and they typically have something on their minds they want to say and they figure they're going to take the moment to do it, but by and large they're all better served if they can keep these things shorter rather than longer. >> don, did you write a short one for clinton's second inaugural? >> president clinton's second inaugural was longer than his first. it didn't stretch on and on, but i think we would have liked -- >> was that his fault or your fault? >> no comment, no comment. we would have liked to have been able to have another day for another edit, but it was a good speech, and, again, you know, they have something to say. president clinton in that case was talking about the 21st century and the millennium that we were moving towards and how he wanted america to come
'm nine years old, finished lincoln's last days, best ever. and will there be a book for killing kennedy. >> yes, in the spring. and with the great success of killing kennedy and killing lincoln has c-span book show invited you on? they have not. point of rocks, maryland, bill you pointed out the conservatives lacked a national lieder, why doesn't you need one. we don't promote ideology on the factor, we promote problem solving for the good of all americans. if you illegally possess a gun in this country you get life in prison, if you illegally discharge a gun you get the death penalty. and singapore, a tough place, spent time there, no doubt about it. don't mess around in singapore. and finally, tonight, the factor tip of the day. be cautious, as we said, in the talking points memo with the internet. whenever you hear somebody say they learned something from the net, be very skeptical. remember, there are no standards in cyberspace, anything goes. let me introduce you to benji, who is he? writes for a site talking points memo and stole from me and he told
down and their families vulnerable. lincoln and garfield and teddy roosevelt shot at. luckily to be saved. truman was attacked. roosevelt was shot at. kennedy was killed. reagan was almost killed. it's not a joke. >> what this goes to is the big and growing difference between the nra's rank and file who are pretty normal people. >> do they know that the idea of talking about assassinating or endangering the lives of a presidential family hurts the process. then to say let's talk about this daughters. >> there's a lot of nra members who don't like this kind of stuff. they're not talking to their rank and file. they're talking to a hard core base right now. i don't know that's a winning strategy for them over the long haul. >> what is going on? lapierre used to seem his head was screwed on a couple years ago. maybe many years ago. why are they sending him out with this absolute rejectionist position? we're not doing anything on gun clips or background checks. why don't say they you know what? there's common ground here. >> we know that their membership supports what we're talkin
back. ben kissell of abe lincoln's top hat. the brilliant sherrod small. i'm sure you saw you on rupaul's drag race. loved you as the black guy. and dave rubin of the rubin report on rubinreport.com. gentlemen, i should not call you that, thank you so much for stopping by. >> john: so glenn beck is building the perfect community. perfect being a really relative term. that's in my commentary coming up next. >> john: so this week, glenn beck here announced that he has plans to go gault. and create a self-sustaining community based on the philosophy of ayn rand's character, john gault in her book atlas shrug a book originally titled hey it is totally cool to be a selfish douchebag. independence park will be inspired by disneyland but built on the principles of the free market where families can "find happiness, inspiration courage and hope" without any of the big government socialism like libraries or post offices or the u.s. army. glenn beck's community will surround a lake that is larger than all of disneyland. it will provide its own food and energy, produce its own tv and film content
, he'll use two other bibles. one of them belonged to president lincoln. it's the same one will be used in 2009 during the inauguration. the second bible belongs to civil rights leader dr. martin luther king jr. king's son joins me now from washington. we're so glad you're here. >> thank you. i'm honored to be here today. >> you wrote an op-ed, even your description of the bible is touching. you say it's faded and some of the pages are torn. tell us how your father, dr. king, used that bible. >> well, number one, we found that when he was pastoring or preparing a sermon, his first sermon at the dexter avenue memorial baptist church, that he actually had markings where he actually designated certain things within the bible. we know that he traveled with the bible, derived inspiration from it. it certainly is worn and at tattered. but i think that shows how much he used it. >> you say you never thought the bible would be used again. why? >> you certainly could never imagine that it would be used in the capacity that it is going to be used on monday as the president accepts his oath of off
for the seven blocks going to the capitol. four years ago, it was all the way back to the lincoln memorial, it was packed with people. governor granholm, you remember from four years ago, in order for everybody on the mall who -- face it, i mean as far as the natural -- unless you have binoculars from here, you can't see what's going on on the west wing of the capitol. every block or so, they have the giant judge bow ton -- jumbotrons so everyone only has to look about a block to see the giant screen so they can both see and hear what's going on. >> jennifer: only about 35 degrees. i don't see much condensed air coming out of your mouth so it must be a little bit warm. is it? >> yeah. the sun is out. it is probably closer to 40 degrees. i took the jacket off when i walked over here to get through the security because it was nice. it is going to be nice. they're expecting it may get a little bit colder this afternoon. maybe rain or snow tonight but people, you know, again, it is really an amazing atmosphere. the sun is shining. it is not as cold as it was four years ago. the conditions are
is lincoln's second inaugural. you know, what you want to do is call attention to, you know, this is a speech that speaks to all americans. not just to your constituency. call attention to the values that can unite us and move us forward. there's not too much more you can do in that context. >> michael, thank you very much. >>> speaking of the values that unite us, this week as we remember the life and legacy of the reverend martin luther king jr., we've got something very special to share with you. previously unreleased interviews with dr. king in atlanta have now been discovered. the 32-year-old civil rights leader was then talking about how at the age of 5 years old he first became conscious of racism and how his mother tried to instill a sense of pride over inferiority in those difficult times. >> it seems to me that the only thing the mother can do, the negro mother, is to try from the beginning to instill in the child a sense of somebody-ness. this is what my mother tried to do. she made it very clear that in spite of these conditions, you are as good as anybody else, and you must not f
to go with lincoln's second inaugural. >> awesome. >> 1865. >> i remember that. it was a good one. >> as i said, the video footage is a little grainy. the audio wasn't there. i was thinking of something else. there's a moment i think is kind of worth sharing because it's rare to encapsulate the failure of a presidency in to one day, the inaugural day. inauguration day. i would say that would be jimmy carter. whatever you think of jimmy carter's politics, the ideology, it wasn't a very successful presidency. and the roots of it sort of evident on the day of the inauguration for two reasons. first, his staff kind of bungled the, you know, showing proper deference to the speaker of the house, tip o'neill, for instance. crucially important guy for getting the carter program through congress. he was miffed because he wasn't treated well with tickets to inaugural festivities and balls and that sort of thing. the leadership of the democratic party in congress, carter won the nomination in an end and around them understanding the new primary rules before they did. he didn't show proper de
gingrich sat on the couch. the health care plan is based off the 1993 bob dole and lincoln chafy health care plan, and you can go on and on down the list like that. that's what i thought was interesting to e.j.'s point. this was not really a speech about what obama wants to get done next. it was about making a philosophical case for what obama and america has already done. somewhat what i think is unusual is an enormous amount of it and -- >> already one day in. >> already unusual one day in. i want to make this sweeping statement early on here. >> please do. that's what we trade on the show. >> it will be dedicated to consolidating the achievements of his first term. getting universal health care done was a big deal, but it hasn't happened yet. it will happen almost entirely many his second term sxshgt same can be said for dodd frank, and the same can be said for the mooumt put into place when he began to endorse gay marriage, and you also saw, of course, it moving across the state. there's a lot happening now that has already happened statutorily or in public opinion, and obama is com
